A hydroelectric power station on the River Pica which supplies power to Montenegro is under threat from an army of rats reputed to be the size of small dogs. Authorities are attempting to come up with a plan to combat the invasion.
Local workers are terrified of the animals. "There are thousands of them and they have eaten through all the cables inside the dam walls and are burrowing lots of holes inside it. We are afraid the dam might collapse..." one said.
None of the workers will go in the station as it is at the moment. "It's like something out of a James Herbert book, they are even eating through concrete," a spokesperson said.
